Image of Board

Snekboard is designed to hook up to Lego Power Functions motors and switches, allowing you to build robots out of Lego and control them with CircuitPython or the simpler snek programming language.

Snekboard is 48mm × 48mm, which is the same size as 6 x 6 Lego studs allowing you to build a box out of Lego to hold it attached to your Lego design. It uses a single cell lithium polymer battery that fits under the board and charges over USB while snekboard is being programmed from the host.

CircuitPython 5.0.0-beta.4

This is the latest unstable release of CircuitPython that will work with the Snekboard.

Unstable builds have the latest features but are more likely to have critical bugs.

Release Notes for 5.0.0-beta.4

Absolute Newest

Every time we commit new code to CircuitPython we automatically build binaries for it. They are stored on Amazon S3 by language (some which may be unreleased.) Try them if you want the absolute latest and are feeling risky.

Past Releases

All previous releases are available on GitHub. They are handy for testing but we recommend the latest stable otherwise.
